Icy and Snowy but quiet
May 2021 • Family
It’s gorgeous is pictures but even better in person. The lake was still mostly covered in ice when we went and the trails were all inaccessible either due to snow or avalanche warnings. The place was very quiet and calm during this time though which is nice. There were no large crowds! And we were able to sit on the rocks and just enjoy the views.

Emerald lake over Lake Louise
May 2021 • Family
The lake is frozen. It was very crowded. The parking was full. The lake is completely frozen and couldnt do much. It does not met until June.
Emerald lake is way worth it. An hour drive towards Fields/Yoho National Park.
The water was calm, turquoise, green and surrounded by lush green forest and not very many people here.

Nice walk across the lake
Apr 2021 • Family
We crossed the lake in the afternoon (April 13th), and it was magnificent!
This place is fantastic and worth every second of the visit!
While crossing the lake, close to the other end, we’ve noticed the snow already started to melt in some places, and it’s easy to get your feet falling through the snow until your knees. So it will be closed for a crosswalk on the ice very soon.
On sunny days I would highly recommend using sunscreen and lip balm.
And watch out for the avalanches.

Great Time!
Mar 2021
We went skating at Lake Louise over Spring Break and it was wonderful! This was our first time to Lake Louise for skating and our girls had a great time. The weather was very nice and it was not crowded at all. There is a bit of a walk up to the skating rink from the parking lot but folks were quite spread out on the lake.

The ice is cleared of snow and I believe the staff there try to resurface it with fresh coats of water. There are some benches for you to change in and out of your skates and a public washroom on the way up to the lake.

We had gone at the end of March and so happy to find out that the outdoor skating rink was still open as many had already closed due to the warm weather.

It is a free activity and great experience for the whole family. Some brought little sleds and toboggans to tow their young ones in on the lake. The parking lot does fill up quickly so go early. If you plan to stay the day, bring some hot chocolate and snacks to have on the lake as you can easily spend the day there just skating!

We had a great time and look forward to going back again!

Majestic view
Mar 2021 • Family
We have been a lot of times before but never did I know that there are falls at the end of the walk. Beautiful walk on the frozen lake... signs are everywhere so you will feel safe... if the signs are gone, don’t go further unless you are an expert on this field...

Walk to the frozen falls
Mar 2021 • Family
We loved our visit to Lake Louise. We walked along the lake to the frozen waterfall. The weather was in the mountains was perfectly Canadian with sunny times, cloudy times and a bit of snow fall. There were lots of people and mostly everyone was considerate of physical distancing. The parking lots attendants are very organized in directing traffic. Our little dog also enjoyed the walk. It's incredibly beautiful and well worth the visit.

Beautiful setting for Lake Louise
Mar 2021 • Couples
Mountains surrounding the lake are just beautifully set. The lake was frozen so we went for a short walk onto the lake. There were people making snowpersons, cross country skiing, skating, etc.

Lake Louise Village
Mar 2021 • Family
We came today to this "village", but no idea why it is called village. Here is definitely not for pedestrians. Few hotels, ugly plaza with some shops. From the hotel to reach the bus stop, I had to go on the road, where is very dangerous. The tourists are trying to make some pads , but it's very difficult to walk there with a small child. There is somewhere a pad to walk, bit it's unreachable from dirty and smelting snow next to the road. We will never come to a hotel here anymore.

It was great

Even though we went in winter and the lake was frozen, we had a great time waking on the frozen lake, taking many pictures, hiking, and having a cup of coffee in the restaurant of the resort.
